Paris - Poland's Agnieszka Radwanska has been rewarded for her victory in the Tokyo Open last week by climbing six places to seventh in the new WTA rankings released on Monday.

American Serena Williams, the Wimbledon, Roland Garros and Australian Open champion, continues to dominate the rankings with more than double the points of everyone except second-placed Simona Halep.

The other significant mover was Halep's Romanian compatriot Irina Begu, who rose three places to 26th on the back of her victory in Seoul last week.

Her beaten opponent in the final, Aliaksandra Sasnovich of Belarus made the most significant strides, rising 34 places to 102nd.

The biggest loser in the top places was former world number one Caroline Wozniacki, who fell five spots to 11th.
